Name/TitleScorebook: MCC Tour to Australia and New Zealand, 1935-36
About this objectScorecards kept loosely spring bound in a green matte folder embossed with "M.C.C Tour; Australia; and; New Zealand; 1935-36; McCanlis; Cricket Scoring; System" in gold.
Inside the front cover a page of notes on using the McCanlis Cricket Scoring system is provided. The pages bound in the folder are summary sheets for each innings, and do not appear to align with the instructions or details of the McCanlis System. Every match of the tour is represented.
The scorecards detail batting and bowling stats, including: time in/out, innings length (minutes), minutes taken to reach milestones, and fielding positions of catchers. All of which are statistics not regularly recorded for matches at this time. The details have largely been input on a typewriter, although some are handwritten and there are some additional handwritten notes on the last few pages which detail the Marylebone player's tour statistics.
